Kyle McSlarrow says being president of the NCTA was never his "long-term goal" so "I actually have to leave."
In a Q&A with Multichannel News' John Eggerton, McSlarrow, who announced his departure from the cable industry's top lobbying arm on Friday, said he doesn't have another job lined up, per se, but "I'm not a complete idiot. I have had a number of conversations with CEOs, operators and programmers alike, enough to give me comfort there was real interest in having a discussion at the appropriate moment."
Unlike about 10 percent of the American workforce, McSlarrow said he has "irons in the fire."
